  1. Even though this is a serious subject mom had to laugh as the car dealers are all pushing the certified pre-owned vehicles and at first we thought this was going to be about cars and pets! We hope the events are a success and will share this now.

  2. This is such a creative idea for an event! I love it and I hope all the pre-owned pets find their forever homes!

  3. Awesome, I hope lots of pets find a great forever home.

  4. Missed knowing you were a Michigander! I grew up there! Well, my mom did! Love Dolly

  5. Sounds great. There is a Petsmart close to us, but logistically I am not sure it would be a good location for a tent event.

  6. Oh I hope all would find a furever home. I will cross my paws specially for Liza and Walter. A dog with such a funny nose must be the perfect furmily member.

  7. Good luck to everyone needing a new home! It’s good of your mom to volunteer – our mom is a terrible volunteer…her latest fosters have all been fails, just hopeless….

  8. That is a very clever idea. We always have the big “certified pre-owned tent” sale BIG car events here, so what a cute idea to do it for pups! Rita was certified, pre-owned!

  9. This is a great idea. They held something similar in our area, at either Petsmart or Petco. They transported hundreds of dogs and cats, from down south, up here to New England, and everyone lined up to enter the tent and meet the dogs and cats. People waited in line for HOURS to adopt these dogs. I keep hoping they will do this again, because it was nice to witness so many animals finding homes!

  10. Any effort at finding homes for these these sweethearts is appreciated!

  11. We hope these guys find forever homes soon!

  12. Good luck to all my furry friends out there! I hope they find their lovely family soon!


  13. What a great idea! Hope lots of them find forever homes!

  14. Great events and all by the Humane Society and Petsmart where we adopted Minx and Mica’s favorite store. Hope the all go really well:)

  15. What a creative way to promote Adopt Don’t Shop! Love it!

  16. What a great angle, I love this idea! It’s great that your HS is so actively involved in trying to adopt pets out, I don’t see that around my state. Something I really hope to change. 🙂
